What is this "other changes" you speak of?

I need a port in my daily storm...

ü75 said...

Gonna try out a new platform, I think. Plus, T-shirts!

jjf3 said...

You pandering bastards! You know I'm a sucker for a cool "underground" T-shirt!!!

:)

jjf3 said...

And, yes, by virtue of me knowing you're "underground", you're screwed...

Apologies in advance...

ü75 said...

Holy shit. This match may get abandoned.

Mike Georger said...

Look at the size of that platform!

ü75 said...

OK, not abandoned, but a 10 minute delay in restart because of two red cards (including Mexican coach). Fun times.

ü75 said...

Phillips, the Panamanian player sent off, was on the pitch for approximately 4 minutes.

ü75 said...

Referee really wants to call it off now. Mexican fans throw stuff at a Panamanian player stretchered off. For the second time, people in suits are on the field trying to get the match restarted.

ü75 said...

Just passed the 10 minutes of added time mark.

Steve said...

i want a t-shirt.

ü75 said...

And, at 55.30 of the second half, the ref blows for full time. Immediately, he is surrounded by Mexican players from the bench. Can't wait to see if there is some blowback from this on both teams.

ü75 said...

You'll get yours, Steve (with proper payment, of course).

Mike Georger said...

I'm getting banned aren't I. And everyone else is getting a star and privileges. I've seen this before, I won't be made a number once again.

ü75 said...

No Georger. That's not it.

Steve said...

thanks umlaut. just making sure you guys know there's demand.

The Mexican fans were just showing their fan spirit.

That NY Times blog post is the worst thing I've ever read about the MLS. And that's saying something.

Robot Agenda said...

does anyone have any footage of this mexican display of awesomeness :end sarcasm

i read about something in the fulham messageboard, now i see this what happened?

Uncle Joey said...

Davies has come out and said he hasn't signed with Sochaux.

ü75 said...

Robot Agenda-
Come back in one hour.

Uncle Joey-
I cannot believe that there is some transfer talk out there that is not true. ;)

Uncle Joey said...

u75-
Yeah. I wouldn't normally bother shooting it down, but some (like Ives, who, by the way, would almost certainly pass the buck to l'equipe) made it sound like a done deal.
